Yucky as in not quite soily enough.
Last year’s section of the garden enjoyed a nice thorough filling of organic compost from a bag. Veggies did nicely last year, rows of soil were compact and rich and not very sandy, not too clayish. This year, I tilled out a whole new piece and it had the standard lawn kind of soil which is a bit clayish, but not too bad. Both sections got all tilled in together. I thought I could just get a way with adding in my own compost which was mostly leaves. Built the rows last weekend, built some bean teepees and a pea trellis. Planted some peas and put in some lettuces from starts and from seed.
Noticed while I was planting that the soil was a bit dry and crumbly. Didn’t worry too much, but now I am. I think I need to add in a whole bunch more of rich compost and soil. Not sure what will happen to the stuff I’ve already planted, but I really don’t think I’ll have too much success with the state of the soil right now. Time to fix it!
